Thread Name: What brand condoms do Mudcatters prefer.
Subject: RE: What brand condoms do Mudcatters prefer.
I understand why this thread was started, but Max makes an excellent point. A forum is a group of individuals discussing a common thread. Not every thread is going to be for every person. My thinking is that if a thread doesn't interest one, don't go there. With cyber communications, most often we never see those with whom we are communicating; it's natural to want to know a bit more about one another. There has been a generality of feeling towards folk music mavens for many, many years. The generality is that we turn up our noses at anything that does not relate directly to traditional music, acoustic music, etc., i.e., we are folk music snobs. I know that isn't true, but some of the people visiting the Mudcat site may not. So ... if the threads wander off the the subject of playing/singing folk music, so be it. After all that business with gargoyle, I have been reluctant to do anything more than lurk in the forum and maybe a few others are feeling likewise, which would account for some of the more lighthearted threads. And, Max, the message you sent has to be taken seriously ... thanks for your candor. jenny
